Some more blooms in Sept

bethnorcal9September 8, 2013

First off, here's Miss Lola sassing me when I came back in from taking pics of roses. She wanted food. (she looks kinda evil doesn't she?)

And here are a few "non roses" blooming now too:



Echinacea SUNRISE

Now for the roses...









RONALD REAGAN - I finally see that so-called red/white/blue look they were talking about when J&P first intro'd this one.


OLD PORT - really is that purple!!


MOONSTONE - not a perfect bloom, but I like the interesting folds and unusual effect

I have Nicole Carol Miller too!!! Tons and tons of flowers. Rarely out of bloom. Smells so sweet!! Looks just like yours except a bit lighter - beautiful!! Except you really captured it so well. What a beautiful flower you've showed. WOW!!
Some others that take my breath away are:
Steppin' Out
Miss Lola
Mystery Day Dahlia

Miss Lola looks like she has cattitude!!

Wow.. The center swirl on 'Swathmore' is wonderful. Love the deep pink color.

But I'm the most jealous of that Echinacea! They just refuse to return each year here.

Miss Lola looks like a very smart cat with a lot to say on all subjects. Reminds me of a teacher I had.

Miss Lola is telling you she has been neglected.
Love all the blooms. Most of all THE MCCARTNEY ROSE

Thanks guys. Lola actually is a little pain in the butt sometimes. She's the only one of our 4 cats that wants to go outside. But I don't want them outside. She's constantly sneaking (darting actually) out the door like a flash and we have to chase her down. I call her the 'Wannabe Escape Artist." She loves to sit and watch the hummies feeding above the porch railing. Little Stinker...

Carol, for some reason NCM came out really deeper colored than usual. She's normally much paler.

Iris gal, I never had much luck with the echinaceas when I first started trying to grow them. I always seemed to end up with the white ones only coming back. Now the white ones are gone and I have a couple purples that come back every yr. And then this one (I actually think it's "SUNSET" not Sunrise.. duh) it comes back every yr. I got one of the green ones a few yrs ago from some mail order source, and it never even came up at all. There's so many new ones coming out all the time.

Swarthmore looks fine. I'm going to HMF to look that up. Hi miss Lola. My two kittyboys do that to me all the time.
